I’m with JPod. Yes, the YouTube thing is a lot of ersatz vox-populi phony-baloney and CNN will stack the deck with a bunch of hostile questions. But so what? As Roger Ailes said of the Dems’ debate boycott, a candidate who can’t stand up to Fox can’t stand up to al-Qaeda. That goes treble for a snowman with a high pitched voice.
You don’t like Mister Enviro-Frosty? Fine, turn the heat on him till he’s just a puddle on the floor with his little corncob pipe and two eyes made out of coal bobbing as forlornly and helplessly as Royal Navy patrol boats off the coast of Iran. But nothing good can come from the GOP being seen to wimp out of the YouTube thing.
